Ladakh

Ladakh the land of the Buddha.

The shanti stupa at Leh.

The main bazaar of Leh town is near the masjid seen at bottom center.
You must be thinking why this place is called the high land dessert.

Move your sight a little to the left and the scene starts to changes.

This is the old part of the city. Hardly any trees. This is what generations of travelers to this city had seen.
The trees have now come up in the other parts of the city due to irrigation system.
In Ladakh the greenery is there where there is water.

Both green and brown in one go.

The roof of houses in Ladakh are flat. This is view of Indus valley from the roof of
Spitok Gompa located 08 Kms from Leh towards Kargil.

The village of Spitok with Indus flowing at an easy pace.

Spitok Gompa.

The mud fort of General Zoravar Singh

The Leh palace overlooks the city.

The Stok palace, where the descendants of erstwhile kings live.

The barren National Park. Is it not a high land dessert.

The Pangyong Tso of which 1/3 is in India and the rest in China.
Sheer size of the lake and the limestone mountains around it completely overwhelm the travelers.
The varying colors of the rocks and their reflection adds to the seven hues of blue and green waters.

The Indus flows by.

The evening vegetable market on the main street of Leh is quite colorful.

KEEP THE MOUNTAINS CLEAN
